    Rabbit and Small Animal Grooming

    Content Courtesy of Ware Manufacturing

     

    For most small animals, grooming is just as much a social activity as it is part of their beauty regime. Grooming keeps your pet happy, healthy, and socially balanced. Rabbits, chinchillas, hamsters, ferrets, guinea pigs, and more… they all enjoy being brushed and pampered by their owner.

     

    The activity also provides you with an opportunity to interact with your pet. Sometimes it can be difficult to catch up with your feisty, fast-moving critters. Setting aside time for brushing and nail-clipping allows you to create a bond with your pet, which is very important for first-time owners. Grooming helps build trust between the critter and their new family.

     

    Most small animals do not need to be bathed with water and soap. This strips their coat of essential, natural oils and can actually cause skin problems. Bathing powder is required for chinchillas and ferrets actually do need to be bathed with special soap. Every small animal species is different, so make sure to research the needs of your specific critter.

     

    Small animals maintain their dental health independently by constant chewing, but nail maintenance requires human vigilance. Check nail length every week to make sure claws are not overgrown. Physical activity usually keeps their nails filed down, but sometimes critters need a quick trim.

     

    And finally, the mane. Depending on the breed, hamster hair can grow quickly and become a tangled mess if not maintained properly. If you are a novice at trimming critter hair don’t despair. Your local vet can show you safe techniques the first go-around. After you feel confident, it is a grooming ritual that can be easily taken care of at home.

     

    Remember, grooming builds the bond between you and your pet. Be safe and have fun!
